katapi HOME The Mission of the Twelve - Lk.9.1-6  Mt.10.5-15  Mk.6.7-13     | NEB Books | notes

Luke: 9
1HE NOW CALLED the Twelve together and gave them power and authority to overcome all the devils and to cure diseases, 2and sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal. 3'Take nothing for the journey,' he told them, 'neither stick nor pack, neither bread nor money; nor are you each to have a second coat. 4When you are admitted to a house, stay there, and go on from there. 5As for those who will not receive you, when you leave their town shake the dust off your feet as a warning to them.' 6So they set out and travelled from village to village, and everywhere they told the good news and healed the sick.

Matthew: 10
5These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: 'Do not take the road to gentile lands, and do not enter any Samaritan town; 6but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7And as you go proclaim the message: "The kingdom of Heaven is upon you." 8Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out devils. You received without cost; give without charge.
9'Provide no gold, silver, or copper to fill your purse, 10no pack for the road, no second coat, no shoes, no stick; the worker earns his keep.
11'When you come to any town or village, look for some worthy person in it, and make your home there until you leave. 12Wish the house peace as you enter it, 13so that, if it is worthy, your peace may descend on it; if it is not worthy, your peace can come back to you. 14If anyone will not receive you or listen to what you say, then as you leave that house or that town shake the dust of it off your feet. 15I tell you this: on the day of judgement it will be more bearable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah than for that town.

Mark: 6
7he summoned the Twelve and sent them out in pairs on a mission. 8He gave them authority over unclean spirits, and instructed them to take nothing for the journey beyond a stick: no bread, no pack, no money in their belts. 9They might wear sandals, but not a second coat. 10'When you are admitted to a house', he added, 'stay there until you leave those parts. 11At any place where they will not receive you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet as you leave, as a warning to them.' 12So they set out and called publicly for repentance. 13They drove out many devils, and many sick people they anointed with oil and cured.

Notes: The most generally known harmonies of the Gospels are based upon the Huck-Lietzmann Synopsis (1936) of the three gospels and Sparks' Synopsis (1964) of four gospels. Many of the passages in these harmonies are too short to display in a useful manner on a web-page.
The katapi New Study Bible Synopsis of the Gospels is based upon the headings displayed in the New Study Bible reference table which in turn follows the headings printed in the United Bible Societies' New Testament in Greek. These sections are more useful for bible study. Columns are arranged so that the first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list (highlighted). The harmonies that follow across the web-page are then in the normally accepted order.
For Old Testament references quoted by New Testament authors, you should either go back to the passage listing web-page and select the link on the 'version' column; or click on the column heading and search through the chapter for the relevant passage; than select the OT passage from the reference column.
